Willing to travel around an hour from Stockbridge, Hampshire, please call me to check!
I believe in the importance of a positive, calm and reassuring presence throughout a woman’s birth from start to finish with no ‘shift changeovers’. I’ll be your advocate, your support and a hand to hold. If you have a partner whom you wish to be at the birth my job is to support you both which is something I really enjoy. If I’m doing my job properly I believe I can and should often go unnoticed at a birth, as your birth is all about you.
I love to plan postnatal care with a client before the birth, I listen carefully to what she feels she might like and sometimes add suggestions of my own. Whatever the plan, I always turn up with a home cooked meal, and we adapt the care to mother and babies day to day needs.
I offer a lending library, aromatherapy, and can suggest homeopathic remedies (if desired). I could prattle on for ages…this is a subject I care very much about! but it’s probably best if you give me a call to check my availability, I am also happy to travel to meet you before you make a decision about which Doula would be right for you.
Best of luck in your Doula search!
